Dover Library hosts blood screening and drive

/ May 10, 2024

The event

Dover Public Library often partners with local health organizations to offer important services to the community. On Friday, May 10, the library will host a blood screening as well as a community blood drive.

Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital will offer an A1c Screening in the morning from 9:00 to 11:00. This non-fasting fingerstick screening test measures your average blood sugar over the past 2 to 3 months and allows people to better manage their blood sugar level, which is key in reducing health complications of diabetes. The cost is $5.00. To register, call the hospital at 330.602.0779.

That same afternoon from noon till 3:00, Vitalant will conduct a blood drive.  Please eat before you donate. Bring a photo ID and a list of any medications you take. Appointments are preferred. To make an appointment and earn reward points, go to vitalant.org and search with Blood Drive Code: U5051. Both the screening and the blood drive will take place on Friday, May 10 in the community room at the library, located at 525 N. Walnut Street, Dover.
